Advertise With The Triplex And Beacon Cinemas

Screen advertising at both the Triplex+ and the Beacon Cinemas gives you the chance to showcase your big ideas on the big screen in the hottest new tool for advertisers. The growth of The Triplex has mirrored the growth of Great Barrington and South County, making our slide-advertising program the perfect fit for area businesses and cultural institutions. Now with the addition of The Beacon Cinema in Pittsfield, we've got you covered from north to south. We feature only local businesses, no national ad campaigns, and space is limited so you are assured that your message will stand out! Advertise in both locations or just one, we've got a package to fit your needs. 

In Theater Slide Advertising At The Beacon

The Beacon Cinema on opened on November 20, 2009, drew nearly 200,000 moviegoers in it's inaugural year, and quickly established itself as the linchpin in Pittsfield's downtown renaissance. With in theater slide advertising our audience receives your message on the big screen uninterrupted by any other form of advertising. Your slide runs continuously before our movies and is simultaneously projected digitally on our 6 screens, using the same technology we use for our all digital movie projection. 
Each advertiser has two slides in the rotation and each slide shows for 10 seconds. The two slides may be different images or the same and may be customized anyway you like within our prescribed layout. Slides may be changed as often as once per week. Change your slides for sales, seasonal promotions,  new program offerings, or just because you can!
